This would be fairly easy to implement using the existing search system, 
ie, artist:<artist> for keywords 'ala google.  The problem is that this 
requires knowledge of the media type, and there's alot of them.

MP3 is actually pretty old, and proprietary, so ID3 tags aren't really 
that useful on their own.  Then you have Ogg Vorbis and FLAC, numerous 
proprietary codecs under Quicktime and MS containers, etc etc etc.

Who's going to do this work?  :-)  I think that's what it comes down to.

While you're at it, why not add License tagging so people can specify a 
list of acceptable licenses, or sort by licenses, to help find the 
truley free/copyleft music out there instead of cookie-cutter commercial 
(and thus illegal) music.
